ACCOMMODATION

MEALS

Day 1

(PD, Motel) We fly to Cairns where we are met by the coach and transferred to our motel. Note: Flights arriving after 6pm will have snack evening meal provided in the room.

Day 2

(CB, Motel) Travel along a spectacular coastline to the lush Daintree River, where we have a boat cruise then time for lunch at the resort town of Port Douglas. We return to Cairns for a free afternoon on the esplanade, with many cafés and restaurants, galleries, markets and stalls. It is a lovely coastal Queensland city. Note: Daintree cruise included.

Day 3

(CB, CAD, Tent in CVan Park) We head up the Atherton Tablelands to Mareeba then begin up “The Cape” to Lakeland and Cooktown. In June 1770, the local Aboriginal Guugu Yimithirr tribe cautiously watched the crippled Endeavour limp up the coast seeking a safe harbour after sustaining serious damage south of Cooktown.

Day 4

(CAB, PL, CAD, Tent in Nat Park) After a visit to the Botanical Gardens and the James Cook Museum on to Laura and the Lakefield National Park, the second largest National Park in Queensland and a haven for many marsupials and water birds. Note: James Cook Museum entry included.

Day 5

(CAB, PL, CAD, Tent at CVan Park) On to Musgrave and the Peninsular Development Road through Coen the largest inland town on The Cape to Archer River.

Day 6

(CAB, PL, CAD, Tent in CVan Park) As the northern most tip of the country gets closer the journey becomes increasingly stunning. We travel through the Heathlands Resource Reserve and cross the Jardine River on the vehicle ferry to Bamaga settled by people from Saibai Island in Torres Strait, after Saibai Island was devastated by abnormally high tides. We camp for the next three nights on the foreshore at Seisia, just kilometres from the tip of Cape York.

Day 7

(CAB, PL, CAD, Tent in CVan Park) Today is all about reaching the Cape. We take the final slow drive through thick forest to the Northern most point of Australia named by James Cook on 21 August 1770 in honour of Prince Edward, Duke of York and Albany. We drive as far as we can but then have to walk out over the rocks to the tip. From there it is 160km to New Guinea across the Torres Strait. We return to Seisia to celebrate reaching this iconic Australian location.

Day 8

(CAB, CAD, Tent in CVan Park) From Seisia we take the ferry to Thursday Island. TI is the administrative and commercial centre of the Torres Strait Islands set up in 1877. Since then TI has been a pearling centre and defence base during WWII. We tour the island including the WWII tunnels and emplacements. The afternoon is free before returning to the mainland again. Note: Cruise to TI and TI tour included.

Day 9

(CAB, PL, CAD, Tent in CVan Park) Heading south across the Jardine River we visit Fruit Bat Falls for a swim at one of far north QLDs most iconic watering holes. Camp at Bramwell Junction.

Day 10

(CAB, CAD, Tent CVan Park) Weipa began as a Presbyterian Mission to the Aboriginal people of the Cape and is now the largest settlement on the Cape due to a large bauxite deposit in the region now mined by Rio Tinto. We tour the mine then camp on the banks of the Arafura Sea. Note: Mine Tour included.

Day 11

(CAB, PL, CAD, Tent at CVan Park) It is back to Coen on the Peninsula Development Road spending our last night
camp at Musgrave.

Day 12

(CAB, PL, RD, Motel) Morning visit to the Split Rock Art Site. This Country contains a large and dramatic body of prehistoric rock paintings. Back to Cairns and our last evening together.

Day 13

(CB) We fly home having had a marvellous tour reaching the northern most point of Australia.
